    I ended up by locking and unlocking the passenger side door a couple of times as well as the rear door. I read online that this may work and it did. Thanks anyway.

Buttons on remote key won't work and no start and no crank and when I try to start it my headlights come on 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan

It takes a lot more power to crank the engine than it does to run the headlights, so it's still possible that the battery is discharged. I might try giving it a boost from another vehicle with booster cables before doing anything else. When you do a boost, it's very important to do it the right way (there should be instructions in your owners' manual if you're unfamiliar with the process).

My car key has a chip in it an i cant open my car door or trunk ,what could be the problem

alot of cars have security chips in the keys and the purpose of this chip is to disable the security locking features such as an immobilizer.
.... however in that car i think most are only fob boards for the remote locking system ensure that if there is a battery in the key/fob that it is not flat.
also note that some keys are designed not to open the trunk but should open the rest of the car.

the general rule of thumb for car locks/systems is;

if the key turns in the lock then it is likely the locking mechanism in the door (if you had another key that worked then you could and should rule this out).

NOTE also lot of car door locks have electrics tied to them these days (hence the drivers door unlocks the whole car), so you still can't rule out the cars security unit or the local master slave units.

.... but if the key does not turn properly or at all, then it is likely the wrong key for that lock, unless the lock is jammed. most locks are designed so only that key or type of key will turn in the barrel of the lock.

Park lights come on in a2008 gmc 2500 hd diesel when left parked not running factory remote start just died also any suggestions

lights stay on for short time after turning off vehicle or when you hit lock or unlock on fob as to auto start either fob battery died --fob malfunction--or you have a check engine code --have vehicle scanned because a pending trouble code may not light up on dash but will disable remote start --if it is a fob problem and you lost programming need to go to a dealer to flash the remote start

I want the security feature to the remote disabled how do I do this?

To de-program the RKE fob from the 1st truck ( the 1998 one ? ), enter programming mode. I had to try 3 times on my 2001 to enter programming mode, and thought I did it the same each time, obviously I did not, so do not give up if you do not enter programming mode the 1st time.

Once you enter programming mode ( locks cycle ) wait 30 seconds, and programming mode should exit. Entering programming mode for the RKE fobs erases all previous RKE fobs.

This should cure the problem with the RKE fobs being programmed to 2 different trucks.

The RKE ( Remote Keyfob Entry ) is not a security feature, just a convenience item, so you are not disabling any actual security item.

Car will not start

replace the battery in the key fob and unlock the car with that, if u last locked the car with the key fob, you armed the alarm and can only be disabled by unlocking with the key fob, the car wont start because its an anti theft feature.
